    New business owner looking for some info.
    Im starting a door2door company and will be collecting money at the door.  $5 will goes towards a charity of there choice.  The rest will be profit and supplies money.
    I figured i would like to start by getting a DBA before i get a LLC, cause i really dont know how i will preform and if the company will profit or not.  I just want something to prove that i run a legit business so if they ask or if a cop stops me i would have documentation.  I will have soliciting permits already, so i know about those.
    I will be making receipts as well for all customers.
    I would like to know would a DBA be enough coverage for this to start ?
    Does anyone know what DBA fee`s are in Texas ?
    What office would i get a DBA from ?
    Would i need a license to collect charity money as well ? 
    I will be offering a service, and $5 is a incentive for the consumer!
    I have a huge list of questions to ask, but these are the ones i would like to get out of the way first.

    Hi Curbside,

    I think you may benefit from speaking to my employer, Daniel Pepper.  He is an intellectual property lawyer and this is one of his specialty fields.  Take a look at our website; 

    If you need to speak with someone give me a call at the office 908.698.0330 and we can set up an appointment for you to speak to Dan for a 1/2 hour free consultation.
